Dryer / Heule / Lindsay: Idea Of West (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

"Dryer/Heule/Lindsay formed to explore musical territories made prominent in recent years emphasizing quiet and static musical structures. The trio seeks to relate to these new territories through pragmatic application of improvisation and compositional structures, rather than through stylistic imitation. Also of note is the trio's adherence to purely acoustic sound production in a music typically dominated by electronics.

The trio attains a new approach to music making by rigorous adherence to fundamental methods of sound production. New material is discovered through a process of simplification, heightened awareness and a shedding of idiomatic mystification. Through this practice the action of producing sound itself becomes material; method becomes content. A focus on quieter dynamics opens a new world of micro-sound possibilities.

No restrictions are placed as to the media of composition for the trio and to date has varied from traditional notation, graphic and text scores, verbal instruction, as well as non-premeditated improvisation. The binding element is an adherence to clarity and an elemental awareness of process and material.

the musicians:

Jacob Lindsay is a clarinetist focusing on the continuum following the U.S. free jazz movement spawned in the 60's, moving through European non-idiomatic free-improvisation, and globally into its current incarnations. Jacob works with the full range of clarinets, combining traditional approaches to the instruments with new approaches based on pragmatic, pre-fabricated methods of sound production and structure.

The music of improvising drummer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Felix Heule spans the spectrum from overwhelming brutality to reductionist austerity. Since 2004 Jacob has been a member of the brutal improv/acoustic grind duo, Ettrick, which toured the U.S. for the third time in April 2008. He has also toured the US and Europe with Gowns, and plays drums on their forthcoming Southern Records Latitudes Sessions album.

Bassist Tony Dryer has toured extensively with rock groups including the Flying Luttenbachers, the Cold War, and Usurp Synapse, as well as a solo tour of the US. Dryer and Heule recently toured Europe with the international sextet, the Bay/Oslo Mirror Trio, and related projects."
